A much different story this morning as compared to 24 hours ago
as deep tropical moisture associated with tropical activity
across the eastern Pacific has settled well south of the forecast
region. In its wake, high pressure will continue nosing south from
the upper Mississippi Valley and western Great Lakes region
today, with breezy northeast winds expected through much of the
daylight hours. This will result in less humid conditions with
slightly below average temperatures as highs climb into the lower
to middle 80s.

The pattern through the upcoming weekend and into early next week
will be marked by a building ridge across the western U.S. with
northwest flow prevailing downstream across the Nation`s
midsection. Meanwhile closer to the surface, fcst models in
reasonable agreement that the previously mentioned high pressure
center will continue to influence the local weather pattern, with
little chances for additional rainfall until middle to latter
stages of next week. Obviously this is good news to those
affected record flooding across the southern KC metro and
surrounding areas. Temperatures will remain near seasonable levels
through the period as latest guidance suggests western U.S.
ridging will remain in place through the extended period.

VFR conditions will prevail over the next 24 hours. Currently,
fog does not look like a big concern for tonight as dew point
values are dropping, with the dry air advection, and light winds
are expected overnight.
